About Me

My photo

From School Teaching to Art and Craft Representative I have learned that I love to teach Art & Craft and see the joy that discovering their creativity brings to people's faces. I live in Queensland Australia & love the laid back lifestyle and the crazy Aussie sense of humour.

I share my art and craft adventures, products and knowledge on my blogs creativedoodlingwithjudy.blogspot.com & celticknotswithjudy.blogspot.com

My favourite trend? Teaching those who think they have no artistic or creative ability to discover they have.

Applique & Cards with Letters

Handmade Cards & Applique
 
 
I have been making cards with the letters and the Christmas Lights from my book. I thought those who bought my book and others who are into card making may be interested in the designs.
 
You are welcome to use these ideas in your own craft projects.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I have a wonderful machine called the Scan N Cut. I scanned my letters and lights from my book, then printed the ones I wanted onto nice watercolour paper and put it through the Scan N Cut. This machines then scans the outline and cut a 2 mm outline around the images. Saves me all that fussy cutting.
 

 
If you have not purchased my book called "Creative Doodling with Judy A 2 Z",  it is full of Letters, Numbers, Borders and Frame Outlines ready to colour or doodling inside of. It can be used for all sorts of crafts.
 
If you wish to purchase my book you can follow this link to my Etsy Store https://www.etsy.com/listing/192886008/creative-doodling-with-judy-west-a-2-z?
 
In my Scan N Cut Classes we have been using my book designs to create some applique pieces. Below are pictures of some of the pieces we produced.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I scanned these images from my book,  with my Scan N Cut and enlarged them, separated the sections I wanted in different colours and them cut each piece of fabric, with the Scan N Cut.
 
If you are interested in doing these Scan N Cut Classes check out my blog in the new year for dates and class info.
 
HAPPY DOODLING

Celtic Christmas Tree

CELTIC CHRISTMAS TREE
 
 
 
Merry Christmas everyone. I have posted this for you. You are welcome to download and use however you like or just look at for ideas of your own.
 
I am still playing with this image, and will post more as I get time to draw.
 
My wrist strain from toooooooo much drawing is improving as long as I don't draw for too long.
 
Hope you enjoy and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
 
HAPPY DOODLING

Celtic Challenge 36

Celtic Challenge 36
 
 
Hi all, I have another challenge for you this month. It is not a large design but it is chunky, so you have plenty of room to doodle.
 
Colour or shade if you wish. Just have fun with it.
 
 
 
 

 
As most of you know I am developing a New Toy to help us all draw Celtic Designs more easily. This design was drawn that way in just a couple of minutes.
 
I have been looking into having this Toy produced and will be meeting with someone this week to discuss the details. So I will keep you all up to date with the progress.
 
I am also teaching a Celtic Knot Class at Stamper's Wonderland this Thursday night and also the following week. These people will get to play with the toy first. Sorry Guys, but I need to test my skills at instructing people on its use. Once I am happy that people can easily understand I will do a youtube video for those who cannot get to my classes but want to play.
 
Hope you all enjoy this months Celtic Challenge.
 
Please leave your designs in the Mr Linky below so we can all enjoy what you have done.
 
 
HAPPY DOODLING
